A private boat ride will take you to the famous “Gulf of Poets”. These amazing islands facing Portovenere won the hearts of many famous poets throughout history including Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley. The cliffs, grottos, and fortresses are so beautiful that Lord Byron would venture to one of them in particular as it drew out his inspiration and meditation, which helped him with his literary works. This grotto is now named after this talented poet as “Byrons Grotto”.
